Languages of publication
The article focuses on the presence of „The Magnificat” in John PaulII’s writings. The essential key to interpret these instances is theconcept of ‘„The Magnificat” of Ages’, which was dear to the pope.The faith lauded in the Canticle is an unequalled exemplar for thesubsequent generations of the Church members, one that the Churchtries to mimic and conform to. Hence John Paul II considered thisMarian hymn a prophetic text and underscored its relevance in regardto the Church in present times. Additionally, to understand the ideaof ‘the Magnificat for Ages’ one has to acknowledge the significance ofseeing the Virgin Mary as the ‘leader of the Faith’, which is frequentlypresent in John Paul II’s teachings referring to Her.
